scare. george w. bush, the president famous for his athletic lifestyle has undergone a heart procedure this morning to clear a blocked artery. the problem was found yesterday in a routine annual physical. we'll have the latest from dr. nancy snyderman. >>> the end of the graham era. after 80 years as a family-run business, the grahams are selling "the washington post" to amazon's ceo jeff bezos seen here deal making at a media summit last month in sun valley. but can the king of dotcom save print? >> we knew we could keep the "post" alive. we knew it could survive. but our aspirations for the "post" have always been higher by that. >> this is going to shake things up. >>> good day, i'm andrea mitchell in washington. nearly 100 u.s. government personnel flew out of yemen today on a c-17 air force cargo plane. leaving only a kel stal emergenskeletal emergency staff behind because of what the state department is calling the extremely high threat level. th all of this comes after the interception of al qaeda communications threatening major attacks on u.s. interests. joining me now from ne
to take a look at this. let's take a look at george bush. you're talking about. here is george bush talking about this from the golf course the other day about this whole thing about whether we go to war or not, take an act of war against assad in syrah. >> the president has a tough choice to make. and if he decides to use our military, the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. leallele he is an ally of iran and has made mischief. >> that was the common sense george bush i liked years ago. i wish he we had that years ago. we don't like the guy. he has bad friends. >> he is trying not to get in obama's way and not to play a role in this. i was funny was elite level trolling by donald rumsfeld. he said the president hasn't made the case for war, which just set off people on the left, right and center all over the place. when you have donald rumsfeld questioning your intelligence and your case for going to war in the middle east, i mean, i think that's trolling on a level. >> they all belong where they are with the american enterprise institute. thank you
. >>> coming up, the ghost of george w. bush. chronic lies and deceptions of the bush administration in iraq have undermined the case for action in syria. don't you think? as one british member of parliament put it, the well has been poisoned. too many crying wolf out there. >>> also the obama/clinton alliance. bill clinton is making a big speech next week at his library pushing the affordable care act. who is the big dog trying to help? the current president or possible future one? >>> plus, segregation laws are a thing of the past. yeah. but we have often self-segregated ourselves into black neighborhoods and white neighborhoods. tonight, the challenges and culture shock for the african-american youngster when he leaves his neighborhood for college. >>> finally, let me finish with the usual suspects pushing this war in syria. and this is "hardball." the place for politics. i think farmers care more about the land than probably anyone else. we've had this farm for 30 years. we raise black and red angus cattle. we also produce natural gas. that's how we make our living and that's how we can
is doing is exactly what george w. bush did in the fall of 2002 when he went before the general assembly and said the international community has to take its responsibility for disarming hussein. >> i have to take a break. george w. bush also said i'm giving you hussein, one more chance before i invade your country. >> that in effect is what the president is doing right now. >> can i say, i misspoke earlier and said the secretary of state and the president went to play golf, it was the vice president. you don't like that. >> this doesn't look good. there was a moment when hillary clinton was secretary of state, she was going to istanbul for a conference on syria. she stopped in south africa and cut a rug on the dance floor in south africa. many people in the region war wondering what kind of behavior is this. we now have the president, this a somber moment in the life of our country and region and 1400 people have been killed in this attack, it's good to forego the golf course. >> no one is denying, all adult, everyone needs to relax but you have to be at least aware of the optics. >> yo
was incredibly reasonable last night when discussing the nsa and i think if you replaced him with george bush, nobody would be complaining. george bush would have said the same. >> not on jay leno. >> you act like a hypocrite, you condemn him because it came out of his mouth. having said that, there's an overwhelming amount of chaos inside and outside this country. president obama takes on the role of a calm pilot, weaving the plane through the storm. the problem is his policies. you can argue about being on jay leno. that's not the problem, the problem is he should be doing something about bigger issues like joblessness, which is a fact that he is not at all engaged in the fracking issue which would do a lot to reduce strife in the middle east, lower the four buck, five gallon buck of gas. not ragging on him for playing basketball. what a bunch of baby games. >> i push back a little, too. i don't have a problem with him playing golf on free time, but when you close 22 embassies, pull that many american diplomats off line. >> he hasn't come out in an official presidential press conference to
-related elements may, in fact, take charge of the country? president george w. bush was hounded by the press over these questions. if he had to answer, so should barack obama. here in stud quo is fox news channel's own colonel oliver north. his new book out in paperback today. >> it is a must read for barack obama. he needs to read this one. it's about a president who forgets about 9/11. guess what's three weeks away? >> my concern is, first of all, this has been going on for 30 months. 100,000 killed. >> over 100,000 dead. over 250,000 wounded. 2.3 million people in refugee camps along the turkish, syrian border. now flowing into iraq. it's an unmitigated disaster that the consequence of this administration's naive approach that all you need is an election in a country that's never had democratic traditions, no institutions and this so-called arab spring. every single country that's experienced this from tunisia in the west to syria in the east, people are worse off than they were before. that includes egypt, the most populous arab country. it's a disaster. >> they have telegraphed that it would
that from george w. bush w who will not enter into the fray of this but understands what president obama is going through. he has been in that oval office. making these tough calls. there is only a few living americans who will understand how difficult these positidecis are. >> we are given the heads up of 1:15 eastern time for this statement. as often happens, with this white house, it is a bit delayed. we don't have a two-minute warning as of yet. we are back with our panel, chris wallace and ollie north. what do you expect him to say? is this more laying out the case? >> i think we will probably -- with a situation where he will announce he will continue to deliberate on this and will try to build some relationships. my guess is because the window is so narrow. you would have to do this tomorrow night. sunday might. because he is not going to do it before he briefs the rest of the members of congress. that's going to be tomorrow. he is going to leave monday night for sweden and then -- but -- that gives him essentially sunday night or monday night to make the attack. you probably don'
irony if president obama looks a little like george bush by engaging in a limited military strike in syria. therefore drawing united states deeper into another middle east conflict. >> irony, indeed. the white house indicated it may not wait for the united nations weapons inspectors to return from syria to present findings, emphasizing they will not be swayed by the u.n.. with other allies now saying they will not join any strike, and the united nations security council said to me in a few days -- set to meet in a few days, if washington goes soon it could find itself acting alone. >> the briefing just broke up. has the white house got the backing he needs here at home, if not abroad? like that is a question that will be answered in the coming hours. what we do know is smooth the evidence they presented, they actually said that bashar al- assad's brother may have been involved in the chemical weapons attack alleged on eastern damascus. they said they have intercepted some sort of calls and such removal in before the attack as well. this has not swayed some members of congress, key
? the implications of u.s. military action in syria. plus, is former president george w. bush trying to rewrite history? why some are furious over a new hurricane katrina exhibit at the bush library. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger. over 20 million drivers are insured with geico. so get a free rate quote today. i love it! how much do you love it? animation is hot...and i think it makes geico's 20 million drivers message very compelling, very compelling. this is some really strong stuff! so you turned me into a cartoon...lovely. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.

as george w. bush's administration did in two terms. since he promised it was going to be less, his numbers are high enough, the percentage of lobbyists he is engaged with in his administration has employed is high enough it is a broken promise. >> reporter: by most accounts, obama care and dodd-frank overhaul of the financial services industry, two laws signed by president obama that are massive, complex, augmented by thousands of pages of regulation only enhance the role and value of lobbyists in the capital. >> thank you. >>> was this country founded by extremists? that's what some in the military are being taught now. >>> and an update on the federal worker who operates a website advocating a race war. the grapevine is next.

remember the pictures of a very fit president george w. bush running and riding a mountain bike were surprised to hear he was in a dallas hospital today getting treatment for a clogged artery. mr. bush is 67 and had no history of heart disease. our dr. jon lapook has more about this. >> reporter: a statement from the former president's office said doctors discovered the blockage yesterday during mr. bush's annual physical. he then agreed with his physicians' recommendation to have a stent put in. in this procedure, a clogged blood vessel feeding the heart is usually opened up with a tiny balloon and the stent is placed to keep the artery from closing. specific details on why mr. bush received the stent have not been released. almost half a million people get them every year, but there's controversy about which patients benefit. so far, studies have shown that unless a person is having a heart attack or near heart attack, a stent is no better than medication and life-style changes at prolonging life or preventing a future heart attack. but many cardiologists believe there is still a b

administration and america in general is less popular in the middle east and arab world today than when george bush left office. >> chuck, to hear some of those answers and there's more about the united states national interests both in terms of making sure that weapons of mass destruction are not proliferating and protecting our alleys and bases in the region, he was a little bit all over the place when it came to answering these questions on syria. >> he seemed to be sort of gathering up a huge grab bag of reasons why we want do it. international law made a brief appearance although i would argue that bashar al assad has violated international law in the course of this. he just doesn't want to do anything. that's been evident for months now. he's even willing to take the hit that comes from drawing a redline and then allowing assad to cross it and have no consequences. i think, you know, when a politician says as he said we got to take a look at that, that's a sure sign what he really means is i have no intention of doing anything. >> how does that translate, do you think, charles, in the mi
